Online Shop closed until further notice Read More...

Due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in the UK we have taken the decision to temporally close our online shop effective immediately, 30th March 2020. Until now our shop has remained available, but the orders we have been receiving have been significantly lower than normal.

While we are just a small, home business between myself and my fiancé, we have decided to take this decision now in the hope that we can help to remove some of the unnecessary work put into the postal service here in the UK and around the world.

We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

Shop Price Increase Read More...
From 6th April 2020 prices in the shop will increase slightly, this is due to production costs and card processing fees increasing.

Tomato and Basil Soup

Back to Recipe list
Soup is the best of those cold days when you just want to snuggle up on the sofa. A nice bowl of naturally gluten free creamy tomato soup would certainly hit the spot, it can also be made dairy free/vegan if the cream is omitted, as nice as the cream makes it, it is still very delicious without it.

Method

1. Remove the tomatoes from the vine, score the tomatoes around the middle twice to mark out quarters, you want the score to lightly pierce the skin but not go to far through.

2. Place the tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds, remove and rapidly place into iced water for a few seconds. This makes the skin easier to peel off. Remove from the water and immediately peel the skin off.

3. Roughly chop the tomatoes up along with the onion and place into the stock with some tomato puree.

4. Chop fresh basil roughly and add to the stock along with a little salt and pepper to taste.

5. Place the soup on a medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes until all the vegetables are soft. Remove from the heat.

6. Pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth, serve with a little cream and a sprig of basil on the top.
